      Five years back I had opened this RD. The best part about this SBI RD they did not levy any additonal charges. Here in RD every month I am supposed to pay about rs 100 as a deposit and it can be any amount and it should be multiples of hundred. I guess there is no restriction when it comes to maximum amount to deposit.

      SBI has to make the process easy for the customer in making payment for recurring deposit.They give a cheque or DD for making payment instead there can be some online options to make the process very simple.The rate offered was good for recurring at that time but now its been reduced with SBI Bank.

      Two years back I had taken a Recurring deposit with State Bank of India. Their interest rate offered was 8.5% and i paid an amount of Rs.5k every month. I had this broken a month before maturity as it was for an urgent need. There was however no charges for the foreclosure. I had opened it as well as closed it through online portal. Its hassle free and gets credited to my SBI account immediately or maximum the same day without any delay.

      With the State Bank of India, I do have recurring deposit and its not much approachable but the good thing is security. Automatic deposit to savings account will not be available like I have to do everything by traditional account. Its been an year of time and the interest rate is pretty good.

The recent scheme is for 3 years and offers an interest rate of 7-8%. I use the recurring deposit for safe investment as I think its a dependable form of savings.

      SBI Recurring Deposit is fine. I normally deposit certain amount to that account. I prefer using internet banking for the same. There is no option where we can deposit a lesser amount however the monthly amount can be increased. I dont get any tax benefit. When it comes to liquidation I have been to the branch personally and I have completed the formalities. This RD is one year old.
